In the halls of Adobe, adobe has include the new tool , it is Flash to html converter. it is known as wallaby.Wallaby is the code name for an experimental Flash-to-HTML 5 converter . Adobe has just released to the development community via Adobe Labs, the site featuring Adobe’s beta technology.

And it’s free download is now avlable on adobe.com .we are including some press release hear.

“We are making this available free on Adobe Labs as experimental technology; it’s something we hope to continue to iterate and get feedback on from customers,” said Tom Barclay, senior product manager for Flash Professional. “I’m interested in how useful this output is, what people intend to use it for, and whether this is something we should be supporting longer term in Flash Professional as another output option or publish setting.”

This technology would make some content previously unavailable on the iOS platform viewable on the iPad and iPhone. Apple does not support Flash on its iOS devices, arguing that Adobe’s multimedia technology is vulnerable to exploits, consumes too much battery life, and crashes too often.

It will Not translate all elements from the Flash files to HTML5,According to Barclay  Users get the benefit of the overall design and motion graphic animations. But blend modes and filters—as well as audio, video, and ActionScript—are discarded in the translation. The output from Wallaby is essentially a combination of HTML, SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), and CSS and is intended as a starting point. Vector graphics are converted to SVG; bitmaps are converted to image elements and JPEG files; and text is converted to paragraph elements or SVG text. The Flash timeline is converted to a group of CSS animations. Scripting allows for batch processing of multiple FLA files.

vector art and images, classic text, keyframes, MovieClips and graphics, classic, motion, and shape tweens, rollover buttons, and instance names.Unsupported Flash Professional features include, filters (except simple alpha); blend modes,dynamic masks, some TLF (Text Layout Framework) text, 3D transforms and 3D tween, audio and video, and ActionScript.

Adobe has also done some preliminary testing of the converter in Firefox, Android, and Opera browsers, but those versions are not yet available.For anything more sophisticated, Barclay says developers would bring the content into Dreamweaver and add interactivity using JavaScript and JQuery. Wallaby has been tested specifically in WebKit-based browsers such as the latest versions of Safari and Chrome.
